Year 2 Sats
The children in Year 2 will complete assessments in May. These are national tests in
- Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG)
Writing is assessed using a selection of written pieces. Children take these formal assessments twice during their primary school life. Firstly, at the end of Key Stage 1 (KS1) in Year 2, and then secondly, at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2) in Year 6. These standardised tests are actually known as End of Key Stage Tests and Assessments, but most people know them as SATs.
Year 2 Big Questions
The Big Question concept requires deep thinking and encourages learners to work using a question as the starting point. The Big Questions builds around the Heathfield Heart, the Heathfield Head and the Heathfield Hands.
- Heathfield Heart demonstrate the character traits to prepare our children for life in the modern world.
- Heathfield Head demonstrates how we have created an inter connected curriculum that enables our children to make meaningful connections. This is carried out through subject specific concepts enabling our children to make links from prior learning and build on new learning. In doing this, our children gain a deeper level of understanding to how the learning taking place impacts on our life now.
- Heathfield Hands demonstrates the opportunities for our children to use and apply their Head and Heart to answer the Big Questions. In addition to this, our children are equipped with life-long skills enabling them to apply these within the modern world.
Autumn - 'How have the Tudors shaped our lives?'
Spring - 'Fire...Good or Bad?'
Summer - 'Could you survive without technology?'
